    Tai CHi Sparring.

    No.. not a joke post. An old clip I came across of Taichi guys actually non-compliant contact fighting.. first video I've seen like this.. 1988. I think I want to hump that Cynthia Ming.

    It's no Thai boxing, but I think it's interesting none the less.

    You should look in the CMA forum. IIF did a thread with TONS of video of all kinds of full contact sparring.
    Combatives training log.

    Interesting, I didn't see much tai chi during the fights, people in the vids seem to wave their arms around magically just before they fought. But when they fought it looked like crappy kickboxing. This seems to be very typical of most MA's that don't regularly spar that then try to spar

    Tai Chi is mainly a wrestling art. That's why you haven't seen them spar much. It's like expecting Judo-ka to spar.

    True. But it still has elements of striking.

    It's called Randori, and it's done in every class.

    Same applies to any decent Taijiquan class that focuses on fighting. For someone with Sanda in his style field, you should know that.

    Sam Masich's catch-and-throw at around 1:39 is a textbook tai chi move. Same at 1:50, and the little sweep at 1:56. We've shown this video a bit before, though I don't think it's ever gotten its own thread. I think Jack Rusher nailed it when he suggested that a lot of the players were pretty good at tui shou but hadn't practiced much san shou.

    I do know that.

    I wouldn't call Randori sparring though. Nor would I call wrestling sparring. Nor would I call push hands sparring.

    I think we agree it's just a difference in terminology.

    There's some great push hand videos in the Chinese Martial Art Forum. The vid above is not quality taichi sparring IMO.

    Sparring is a very poor choice of words in the context that you are trying to use it.

    A reminder- tai ch people who don't spar can't claim a victory with these videos.
